Hymnus
Vir celse, forma fúlgida
virtútis, hymnum súscipe,
qui iure dum te prǽdicat,
Dei canit magnália.
Qui sempitérnus Póntifex
stirpem Deo mortálium
revínxit, atque réddidit
paci novo nos fœ́dere,
Te fecit ipse próvidus
sui minístrum múneris,
Patri datúrum glóriam
eiúsque vitam plébibus.
Regális huius cúlminis
adéptus altitúdinem,
verbo fuísti et móribus
doctor, sacérdos, hóstia.
Locátus in cæléstibus,
sanctæ meménto Ecclésiæ,
oves ut omnes páscua
Christi petant felícia.
Sit Trinitáti glória,
quæ sancti honóris múnia
tibi minístro sédulo
dignis corónat gáudiis. Amen.
Hymn
Who are these like stars appearing,
these, before God’s throne who stand?
Each a golden crown is wearing;
who are all this glorious band?
Alleluia! Hark, they sing,
praising loud their heavenly King.
Who are these of dazzling brightness,
clothed in God’s own righteousness?
These, whose robes of purest whiteness,
shall their lustre still possess,
still untouched by time’s rude hand?
Whence came all this glorious band?
These are they who have contended
for their Saviour’s honour long,
wrestling on till life was ended,
following not the sinful throng;
these who well the fight sustained,
triumph through the Lamb have gained.
These are they whose hearts were riven,
sore with woe and anguish tried,
who in prayer full oft have striven
with the God they glorified;
now, their painful conflict o’er,
God has bid them weep no more.
These, the Almighty contemplating,
did as priests before him stand,
soul and body always waiting
day and night at his command:
now in God’s most holy place
blest they stand before his face.

Ps 124:1-5
Dominus custos populi sui

Pax super Israel Dei” (Gal 6, 16).

Pax vobis, ego sum: nolíte timére, allelúia.
1Qui confídunt in Dómino sicut mons Sion:*
  non commovébitur, in ætérnum manet.
2Ierúsalem, montes in circúitu eius,†
  et Dóminus in circúitu pópuli sui*
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
3Quia non requiéscet virga iniquitátis super sortem iustórum,*
  ut non exténdant iusti ad iniquitátem manus suas.
4Bénefac, Dómine, bonis*
  et rectis corde.
5Declinántes autem per vias pravas†
  addúcet Dóminus cum operántibus iniquitátem.*
  Pax super Israel!
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Pax vobis, ego sum: nolíte timére, allelúia.

Psalm 124 (125)
The Lord guards his people

Peace be with you, it is I: do not be afraid. Alleluia.
Those who trust in the Lord are like the mountain of Zion:
  it cannot be shaken, it will stand firm for ever.
Jerusalem – the mountains stand guard over it,
  and the Lord stands guard over his people,
  both now and for ever.
The sceptre of the wicked shall not rest
  upon the inheritance of the just;
lest the just themselves stretch out their hands
  and turn to wickedness.
Be good, O Lord, to the good
  and the upright of heart.
As for those who turn away to crooked paths,
  the Lord shall treat them like the doers of evil.
Peace be on Israel!
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
  and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
  is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Peace be with you, it is I: do not be afraid. Alleluia.

Ps 130:1-3
Quasi parvuli fiducia in Domino collocata

Discite a me, quia mitis sum et humilis corde” (Mt 11, 29).

Speret Israel in Dómino, allelúia.
1Dómine, non est exaltátum cor meum,*
  neque eláti sunt óculi mei;
neque ambulávi in magnis,*
  neque in mirabílibus super me.
2Vere pacátam et quiétam*
  feci ánimam meam;
sicut ablactátus in sinu matris suæ,*
  sicut ablactátus, ita in me est ánima mea.
3Speret Israel in Dómino*
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Speret Israel in Dómino, allelúia.

Psalm 130 (131)
Childlike trust in God

O Israel, hope in the Lord. Alleluia.
Lord, I do not puff myself up or stare about,
  or walk among the great or seek wonders beyond me.
Truly calm and quiet I have made my spirit:
  quiet as a weaned child in its mother’s arms –
  like an infant is my soul.
Let Israel hope in the Lord, now and for all time.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
  and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
  is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
O Israel, hope in the Lord. Alleluia.

CanticleApocalypse 4,5

The song of the redeemed

May your whole creation serve you, for you spoke and they came into being. Alleluia.
You are worthy, our Lord and our God,
  to receive glory and honour and power;
for you made all things,
  and it is by your will that they exist and were created.
You are worthy, Lord,
  to receive the book and open its seals,
for you were killed,
  and with your blood you have ransomed people
  from every tribe and language and people and nation,
and made them rulers and priests for God;
  and they will rule over the earth.
The Lamb is worthy, who was killed,
  to receive power and riches and wisdom,
  strength and honour, glory and blessing.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
  and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
  is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
May your whole creation serve you, for you spoke and they came into being. Alleluia.

Lectio brevis1 Petr 5:1-4
Senióres, qui in vobis sunt, óbsecro, consénior et testis Christi passiónum, qui et eius, quæ in futúro revelánda est, glóriæ communicátor: Páscite, qui est in vobis, gregem Dei, providéntes non coácto sed spontánee secúndum Deum, neque turpis lucri grátia sed voluntárie, neque ut dominántes in cleris sed formæ facti gregis. Et cum apparúerit Princeps pastórum, percipiétis immarcescíbilem glóriæ corónam.
Short Reading1 Peter 5:1-4 ©
Now I have something to tell your elders: I am an elder myself, and a witness to the sufferings of Christ, and with you I have a share in the glory that is to be revealed. Be the shepherds of the flock of God that is entrusted to you: watch over it, not simply as a duty but gladly, because God wants it; not for sordid money, but because you are eager to do it. Never be a dictator over any group that is put in your charge, but be an example that the whole flock can follow. When the chief shepherd appears, you will be given the crown of unfading glory.

  ánima mea Dóminum,
et exsultávit spíritus meus*
  in Deo salvatóre meo,
quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllæ suæ.*

quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est,*

et misericórdia eius in progénies et progénies*

esuriéntes implévit bonis*
  et dívites dimísit inánes.
Suscépit Israel púerum suum,*
  recordátus misericórdiæ,
sicut locútus est ad patres nostros,*

CanticleMagnificat

My soul rejoices in the Lord

I made myself all things to all men in order to save them all. Alleluia.
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
  and my spirit rejoices in God, my salvation.
For he has shown me such favour –
  me, his lowly handmaiden.
Now all generations will call me blessed,
  because the mighty one has done great things for me.
His name is holy,
  his mercy lasts for generation after generation
  for those who revere him.
He has put forth his strength:
  he has scattered the proud and conceited,
  torn princes from their thrones;
  but lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things;
  the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel,
  he has remembered his mercy as he promised to our fathers,
  to Abraham and his children for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
  and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
  is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
I made myself all things to all men in order to save them all. Alleluia.

Prayers and intercessions
Let us pray to Christ, the high priest, who was appointed to represent men in their relations with God.
Lord, save your people.
Lord Jesus, in times past you have lighted the way for your people through wise and holy leaders;
  may Christians always enjoy this sign of your loving kindness.
Lord, save your people.
You forgave the sins of your people when holy pastors prayed;
  continually cleanse your Church through their powerful intercession.
Lord, save your people.
In the presence of their brothers, you anointed your holy ones and poured on them your Spirit;
  fill with your Holy Spirit all the leaders of your people.
Lord, save your people.
Nothing could ever separate the holy pastors from your love;
  do not lose even one of those whom you redeemed by your passion.
Lord, save your people.
Through the pastors of your Church you give your sheep eternal life, and no one can steal them from you;
  save the faithful departed, for whom you laid down your life.
Lord, save your people.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur nomen tuum;
advéniat regnum tuum;
fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie;
et dimítte nobis débita nostra,
sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris;
et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem;
sed líbera nos a malo.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
  hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
  Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
  and forgive us our trespasses,
  as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
  but deliver us from evil.

Deus, qui fidéles tibi servos sanctitátis glória sublimáre non desístis, concéde propítius, ut illo nos igne Spíritus Sanctus inflámmet, quo beáti Philíppi cor mirabíliter penetrávit.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum,
qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
God our Father, you are continually raising to the glory of holiness
  those who serve you faithfully.
In your love, hear our prayer:
  let the Holy Spirit inflame us with that fire with which, in so admirable a way,
  he took possession of Saint Philip’s heart.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dóminus nos benedícat, et ab omni malo deféndat, et ad vitam perdúcat ætérnam.
  Amen.
The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.
  Amen.
